Tomorrows Bad Seeds
Tomorrows Bad Seeds, "leaders of the new school" is a five piece American band from Hermosa Beach, California formed in 2004. Their Southern California influences helped yield their unparalleled sound. A coalition of rock and reggae, punk and blues, beats and riffs. From break dancing to spinning tracks these boys emerged into multi-cultural musical phenomenon with a cause. Tomorrows Bad Seeds aims to be a fundamental development in the reproduction of conscious music worldwide! Meet the Seeds: Moises Juarez (lead vocals), Sean Chapman (vocals/guitar), Mathew McEwan (vocals/guitar), Patrick Salmon (drums), and Andre Davis (bass).January of 2011 began with an ignited fire. TBS started the year off by filming a music video for their fan loved song "Reflect". Days later on January 12 they filmed their first national TV appearance for The Late Late Show With Craig Ferguson which aired March 3, 2011. By the end of January TBS headed out for a four week tour with the legendary Wailers. Within days of the tour ending they teamed up with Katchafire and stayed on the road.

"We're so versatile because we come from such a melting pot of music here in the South Bay," Moises said. "...We all grew up on punk, and then hip hop kinda came and took over, but we all loved oldies back in the day...we all surf too...it's really just a blend of everything."
